Kayla, age 12 guest blogger
Hello there! My name is Kayla and I am a 12 year-old food blogger, my food blog is So You Think You Can Cook, www.soyouthinkyoucancook.wordpress.com. I believe I started cooking when I was 9. The first dish I made was called “well-seasoned salmon” I would simply season the salmon with a variety of you guessed it, seasonings! I then started watching Food Network, and started experimenting with different cuisines, and now, here I am, a happy food blogger!
I know several parents are worried about their kids in the kitchen, well my message to you is, don’t worry! If you have a child between the ages of 3-5, invite them to the kitchen to prep some of the ingredients. You can do things as simple as making brownies with them, and they are sure to enjoy it! They don’t have to be sliding things into the oven or sauteing veggies, all they have to do is help prep it, and they will feel as if they’ve accomplished something!
If you have a child between the ages of 6-7, you can let them be a bit more adventurous in the kitchen, teach them how to chop up an onion , with your supervision of course. If you have a child who is 8 or older, let them be creative, look up recipes with them for something they’d like to cook, and sit in the kitchen, and let them do the cooking, they’ll ask you for help if they need it. Your kids can have fun in the kitchen with you, and one bonus is they will mostly eat anything they helped make!
Parents can spend quality time with their kids in the kitchen whether they’re cracking eggs, rolling out doughs, or chopping onions. What are you waiting for, get in the kitchen with your kids now!
